Merrill Lynch embezzler now faces bankruptcy woes
Sunday, July 22, 2012
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- A Connecticut native who embezzled $43 million from Merrill Lynch a dozen years ago is back in business as an investment company managing partner and running other firms with multimillion-dollar deals.
But court documents show Norwich native Daniel Gordon remains mired in a bankruptcy case he filed in New York three years ago that includes fraud allegations by his ex-wife, Laura Gordon, and pro basketball player Eddy Curry. Curry claims he shouldn't have to repay Gordon more than $1 million for a high-interest loan because Gordon fraudulently obtained the money to lend him.
Gordon served half of a 42-month prison sentence for the Merrill Lynch theft. He was freed in 2007 and is now managing partner of the Rosedale Cooley investment firm in Manhattan.
Gordon is disputing the allegations.
